June is a great time of year to dust off those G1 skills you learned in the fall and head down to Washington for some mountaineering. The general plan, for now, is to climb Mt. Baker via the Easton route as it is one of the least technical and straightforward routes. While this route is technically a walk up it does require glacier travel and potential crevasse navigation even in June. Therefore I am requiring everyone to have completed G1, there's a refresher on March 7th  (or equivlent experience) and I will be running a dry school following the pre-trip meeting so everyone is on the same page and comfortable with crevasse rescue.

This is in no way an instructional or guided trip and everyone must know how to be self-sufficient in the mountains (Please don't show up to the dry school with zero experience). This is a very serious objective with real hazards with 2200m of gain in 11km. If you have any questions please email me at: [email protected]

The plan is to head down early (~5am) Saturday morning, ideally hiking up by 8 am. We'll camp Saturday night up on the mountain, with an alpine start Sunday morning for the summit and back in Vancouver that night.  

Gear: Mountaineering boots, Crampons, Ice Axe, Crevasse Rescue gear including a picket, Harness, Helmet, and everything else you need to survive a night on Mt. Baker.
